Herbal remedies address our emotional level.
Special for the monastery medicine: They teach us the Level of humility.
The fallen person should rise up in remorse
and renew themselves in the holy way of life with the variety of virtues like the freshly blooming flowers.
The arrogance does not heal, but destroys because it crushes, cuts and cuts every thing.
Humility, on the other hand, does not rob or deprive anyone of anything, but rather holds everything in love.
In her (repentance), God leaned to the earth and united all virtues.
Because the virtues strive towards the Son of God,
like the virgin spurns the man and Christ calls her groom.
These virtues are associated with humility,
when He led them to the King's wedding meal.
